Travel Blogger Awards.

Travel bloggers are mostly ignored when it comes to award season. But not this year. This year, there are two travel blogger awards on offer.

For the very first time, the Weblog Awards have a 'best travel blog' category.

After a short nominating period, the finalists have been listed. They are...

Folie a Deux
The Asian Traveler
Curious Expeditions
Notes from the Road
The Lost Girls
LL World Tour
Jaunted - The Pop Culture Travel Guide
Intelligent Traveler
The Cranky Flier

There's a few of my favorites there, as well as some I can see I'll be spending some time at getting to know in the future.

It's great to see fellow travel bloggers getting acknowledged and recognized, so get out and vote. I have but I'm not going to tell you who for.

But wait, there's more...

Caitlin from Roaming Tales gave me a heads up on the first every Lonely Planet Travel Blogger Awards.. She even voted for Write to Travel in the themed blog category (thanks Caitlin)
